(ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, 01 MAR - Likud dropped significantly in a first poll conducted last night, after state attorney general Avichay Mandelblit announced that he had decided to indict premier Benyamin Netanyahu for fraud and corruption, including if everything remains conditioned to one of his future auditions. According to the FM103 poll, reported by Maariv, Benny Gantz's center of 'Blue-White' would get 37 of the 120 seats in the Knesset today, while the Likud would drop to 25. In recent weeks the two parties were shoulder to shoulder, with around 30-32 seats each.
The 'Blue-White' No.2, the former defense minister Moshe Yaalon, said today that if his party were the first in order of magnitude after the April 9 elections, it would first try to compose a coalition with ' 'the Likud, but without Netanyahu' '. Only in a second phase, he added, would he turn to the Laborers of Avi Gabbai. Other surveys will probably be published in the evening by television broadcasters.
